More dal recipes for dinner this week - perfect winter comfort food.
First up moth bean dal with mango. Moth beans cooked with tumeric, panch phoran (fenugreek, mustard, nigella, fennel and cumin seeds, toasted and roughly ground), chilli, curry leaves and grated unripe mango. Served with spinach and garlic greens and chapati.
Next up, urad dal with ginger, garlic, chilli and poppy seeds from Bittman's 'How to Cook Everything Vegetarian'. There's some basmati rice hiding under there somewhere.
Finally last night's dinner, and shock horror it's not dal. Stir-fry (or super-fry as we call it). Tofu triangles with orange and green peppers, sugar snap peas, baby corn and carrot cooked in ginger, garlic, soy and mushroom ketchup.
